Webb Ministries was birthed in the heart of Rev. Scott Webb several years ago in response to a strong desire to help pastors and churches. After pastoring for 30 years, much was planted into his and Phyllis’ hearts that is now being imparted into pastors and ministers throughout the world.
After attending Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Scott and Phyllis Webb moved back to their hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, to pioneer a Spirit-filled, Word of Faith church that preached the gospel of Jesus Christ without compromise.
Week after week as the Word was being preached, faith was rising in the lives and hearts of their church, and in 1987, they moved into a large building on what the locals called “the Parkway.” In fact, it was in this building during a revival taking place in the city where Scott Webb surrendered his life over to the Lord and wholeheartedly answered the call of God on his life.
When seeking the Lord about the purchase of this property, the Lord spoke very clearly to him this verse: Haggai 2:9—Theglory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts.
Truly that is what happened. Such notables as Kenneth E. Hagin, Lester Sumrall, Kenneth Copeland, Billye Brim, Jerry Savelle, Jesse Duplantis, Ed and Nancy Dufresne, Mac Gober, Vicki Jamison-Peterson, Roy & Margaret Hicks, Marilyn Hickey, Jerry & Marilyn O’Dell, and Christopher Alam conducted powerful meetings there.
During their years of pastoring, there were seasons when they would hold meetings for weeks at a time. Much impartation was made during this time, and many lives were blessed. Their church became known as one where miracles took place—both healing and financial miracles. One minister would call it the “make-up” church because he knew that when he ministered at Scott Webb’s church, it would help catch him up financially.
Amidst all the miracles and testimonies that took place, there was one area of ministry that kept them coming, and that was prayer, led by Phyllis Webb. With the help of the Holy Spirit, she developed a prayer ministry for their church that literally touched the nations. Through their earnest, heartfelt, continued prayer, great power was made available, and as a result, many families and lives were changed.
During one of the times that Kenneth E. Hagin was ministering in Birmingham, Scott asked, “Dad, I hear a lot of people prophesying about what God is going to do in these last days, but what do you see for these last days?” Brother Hagin kindly replied, “What God wants to do in these last days is build strong local churches that will preach the Word and move with the Spirit.”
Those words still ring in Scott’s and Phyllis’ hearts. Today they are working together with Pastor Chris Pilkerton in Chelsea, Alabama where they are building a strong local church that preaches the Word and moves with the Spirit!
